I am involved in a series of online Mirosoft Teams meetings with a supplier; as you can imagine there are times where we need to have a brief internal communication with only our company personnel.

 

If we are all in the same room we can simply mute our microphone, but we have some of our team (including some external consultants) joining the meetings remotely and this would exclude them from the internal 'huddle'.

 

Is there any way we could mute the outgoing audio to just the supplier and keep everything else active?

I hadn't thought of that option; take everyone to a different room as opposed to excluding the one party - very clever.

I'm not sure if the breakout room functionality is available in our organisation, but I will check. Having looked online this would be an excellent soltution.

Thank you so much for your input.
